Juventus FC won Italian Serie A

Juventus FC won the Italian Serie A, the 9th in row and the 36th of its history! Despite a complicated game for a few moments, Sarri's team does not fail the second match point and wins the 9th consecutive Italian title.

Against Sampdoria the match ends 2-0, opened by the goal in the extratime of the first half of Cristiano Ronaldo - the 31st this year, are 450 in the championships played in his career - who takes the cover of the evening and the title, his second in Serie A.

The Portuguese is also an 'accomplice' to the goal that ends the challenge, signed by Bernardeschi, but has on his conscience the penalty missed in the final that keeps him away from Immobile in the bomber ranking.

The other great protagonist of the season, Dybala, exults halfway through an injury that worries him in view of the Champions League. Meanwhile Sarri, the oldest coach ever to win a championship in Italy, celebrates the first personal Scudetto and on the Juventus bench.

He does it two days in advance, after a journey always at the top of the standings, and putting behind the difficulties highlighted in the last period. Ranieri's team, however, comes out with their heads held high at the Stadium to make way for the bianconeri party.

Ronaldo scores: Juve is still champion

Sarri deploys Cuadrado in the offensive trident with Dybala and CR7, and proposes Pjanic in the midfield hinge completed by Rabiot and Matuidi. Ranieri chooses a 4-4-2 with Tonelli employed as right back and the Ramirez-Quagliarella pair forward.

The start of Sampdoria is excellent and immediately becomes dangerous with the header by Ramirez who, left alone, hits the head and facilitates Szczesny's grip. The blucerchiati close all the lines of passage very well, but they risk complicating life on two defensive lightnesses that put Ronaldo in the condition to score.

Both times the Portuguese is anticipated when he kicks, first by Tonelli and then by Chabot, with the latter suffering an involuntary blow and after a few minutes he is forced to go out in favor of Leris. On the other hand, problems also for Danilo who, due to a fortuitous contrast to the head, gives way to Bernardeschi, with Cuadrado climbing in the defensive phase.

Samp continues to play well and goes twice to shooting with Quagliarella, always carefully neutralized by the Polish goalkeeper. Juve also lost Dybala in the end of time - adductor problem, replaced by Higuain -, but immediately afterwards he built his best chances.

Bernardeschi engages Audero with a left-handed from the line, then flies over the crossbar on a close free-kick. On another set piece, at the last second of recovery, the Bianconeri take the lead: Pjanic pretends to shoot and serves in the middle for Ronaldo who, by first intention, puts the ball in the corner with his right and signs the 1- 0 before the interval.

Samp also starts strong in the second half and goes twice as close to the same in a few minutes. First with Leris, good at entering the area but weak in left-handed shooting, and then with Tonelli, whose header ends with a blow to the side.

By air, Ramirez tries again soon after, but Szczesny has an easy life. Juve tries to take advantage of the spaces inevitably granted by their opponents and at 67 'puts the seal on the match. Ronaldo re-enters the right and kicks, Audero does not hold back and Bernardeschi's tap-in arrives on the rebound, to the first goal in A after almost two dry years.

However, Ranieri's formation does not want to give up and he gets another good opportunity with Quagliarella's header, still stopped by Szczesny. Sarri's boys, on the other hand, try to further increase the lead in the final - thanks also to the numerical superiority caused by the double yellow card for Thorsby - but Higuain fails the trio from an excellent position.

A minute from the end, then, Depaoli is overtaken by Alex Sandro and spreads him in the area. From the diskette CR7 has the possibility of rounding up his personal score, but the 11m strong right slams the crossbar and grace the Samp (and Immobile).

The anger over the mistake lasts those few seconds before the final whistle that marks the victory of Juventus, the Italian champion for the 9th year in a row. Nobody, in the top-5 European championships, had ever experienced such a long series of successes at home.
